Wrong, wrong, so very very very wrong
have researched this more. Every reply you post emphasizes how you were completely clueless about everything having to do with circumcision. You allowed your newborn to have a normal and healthy part of his body amputated based on misinformation so outlandishly stupid that I, personally, would be embarrassed to admit them as reasons.
"ATLANTA (CNN) -- A new study found circumcision so traumatic that doctors ended the study early rather than subject any more babies to the operation without anesthesia.
The researchers discovered that for those circumcised without anesthesia there was not only severe pain, but also an increased risk of choking and difficulty breathing...Up to 96 percent of the babies in the United States and Canada receive no anesthesia when they are circumcised, according to a report from the University of Alberta in Edmonton.
Many people on here have offered you kindness and helpful advice. They've pointed you to the regrets thread and informed you that many mothers on here who have one or more circumcised sons have educated themselves about circumcision and are now among the most vocal of intactivists. They have repeatedly told you that you are not to blame; it's obvious by your responses that no one
helped you learn this topic at all. And yet even with your original questions about the skin reattaching and looking "deformed", even with the information that practically everything you know about the intact penis is inaccurate, even with the information that Canada's circumcision rate is down to 18%, you still have the gall to tell all of us that everything is perfect, and that YOU
are happy with how you had your SON'S
You may think your son will grow up completely clueless that a part of his healthy body was ampuated. You are forgetting, however, of an invention known as "the internet". It is true that he may not care that he was circumcised, but I can guarentee you that he will find out about it. In finding out, he will also end up reading and learning about the normal foreskin, the roles it plays in infancy and adulthood, and how circumcisions are performed. The men of today are much more knowledgable about what they lost for no reason than their fathers, and our sons will be even more knowledgable. My parents-in-law were very surprised to learn that my husband is upset and angry about having been circumcised. They never thought he would have a clue. Unfortunately they guessed wrong. Of course it doesn't affect them at all because it's not their penis. They weren't the ones who had to deal with pain and tightness with every erection. You see, even though parents are the ones who choose this cosmetic surgery, they aren't the ones who grow up to actually use the modified body part. It's the exact same for you. You would have seen your son's penis for probably 5 years at the most. He's going to have to see it and use it every single day
for the rest of his life.
